It used to be, you’d visit a doctor, wave your insurance card and the bill was taken care of. But times have changed.
We are "non-participating" providers for Medicare. Those patients with Medicare coverage are responsible for paying for the charges of covered services for Medicare at Medicare rates, and we will bill Medicare on your behalf for reimbursement to you. Medicare does not cover procedures outside of manipulation to the spine, and these procedures will need to be paid for at the time of the visit.
Out of Network Insurance Billing
For those covered by other insurance companies with benefits that cover chiropractic care, we are able to bill the insurance company as an out of network provider. We ask payment of our "cash fee" at the time of the visit. If you wish to provide bills to your insurance to satisfy deductibles or bill your insurance company yourself, we will provide the necessary documents for you to submit to your insurance carrier so you can be directly reimbursed for your care. If you ever have a question about the financial aspects of your care, rest assured that our dedicated staff are ready to work with you on finding the most economical means to achieving wellness.
Misunderstandings About Insurance Coverage
Most insurance policies will help pay for chiropractic care when you have obvious symptoms. However, in many cases, benefits run out when you’re feeling better, but before muscles and ligaments fully heal. This invites a relapse of your original problems. Lasting healing is based on a course of treatment customized to your special needs.
The SolutionWellness is a lifestyle and not a quick fix. The relationship you will have with Asheville Center for Health Excellence is more a partnership than a one-way street. Our goals are your goals. We stand beside you and coach you through the process of healing towards long-lasting wellness. Wellness that is based not on a quick patch but rather an effective, efficient lifeplan.
Will you count on the limited vision and lack of preventative maintenance through your carrier to dictate what you do or how far you’ll get on that path towards total wellness?
Or, will you value your health and longevity enough to find the means to address the care needed to strengthen, stabilize and support your future?
In the end, it’s your body...your health...and your future.
Whatever your decision, Asheville Center for Health Excellence will honor your choices and work with you to do what we can to help you achieve your health goals.
